OwENSBORO, KY. t April 30, 1892. 
FINE WHISKY FACTS. 

Thie "Kentucky Club" whisky was t\\e first whisky ever 
produced under the brand "club," aqd gained a world-wide 
and very enviable reputation, as also did tr\e " R. Monarch," 
for tr\eir fine body, flavor, etc. Of sucr\ note was thjs whisky, 
th\at since tr\e goods were first produced tr\ere HAS beeq imitat- 
ing brands springing up every day, aqd from every section of tr\e 
country, so mucr\ so tr\at parties have beeq stopped by COURTS 
AND US. We desire to state tr\at now, as when th^e goods were 
first made, these goods have no equal in point of body, flavor, 
and bouquet. 

The Kentucky Club, R. Monarch, and T. J. Monarch are to- 
day made tr\e same as tr\ey were tweqty years ago, and will 
continue to be made in the same old style so long astr^e present 
nqanagemeryt exists. 

We are not for cheap goods, but for quality ; tr\at, we know, 

will always keep us near to our customers. 

Respectfully, 

R. MONARCH.

J. M. ATHERTON COMPANY. 

OFFICERS. 

J. M. ATHERTON, President. P. L. ATHERTON, Vice-President. 

FRANK MILLER, Secretary and Treasurer. 

THIS CORPORATION, organized July i, 1881, owns 
and controls the Atherton, Mayfield, and Carter Dis- 
tilleries, and the At her ton, May fie Id, Clifton, Wind- 
sor, Carter, Roanoke ', Howard, Hinde, and Brown- 
field brands of Bourbon Whiskies, and Atherton, 
Indian River, and Carter Ryes. 

THE ATHERTON BRAND was established in 1867, the 
Mayfield in 1870, and the other brands purchased 
or established since that date. 

THE GENERAL OFFICE of the Company is in Louis- 
ville, while the distilleries are situated forty-five 
miles south of Louisville, near New Haven, Nelson 
County, Ke?itucky, in one of the most famous regions 
in the State for the production of fine whisky. 

FROM THE SMALL FRAME BUILDING, erected in 1867 
by Mr. f. M. Atherton — the Atherton distillery, 
with a capacity of eight barrels of Whisky per day 
— this business has expanded until the plant as it 
now stands consists of three brick distilleries, with 
a capacity of 225 barrels per day ; ten brick ware- 
houses, having total storage capacity of over 100,000 
barrels ; cooperage works where 225 barrels can be 
turned out daily ; cattle barns, machine shop, offices, 
etc., more than twenty -five acres being embraced in 
the pre7nises.

J. M. ATHERTON COMPANY 



THE PLANT is connected with the Louisville & Nash- 
ville Railroad by three miles of track, oivned and 
operated by The J. M. Atherton Company. 

ALL OF THE BUILDINGS except cattle barns are of 
brick, over 1 1 ,000,000 brick having been made and 
laid on the place since 1878. 

THE DISTILLERIES are thoroughly equipped with the 
most improved machinery and distilling apparatus, 
and are kept scrupulously clean. 

THE WAREHOUSES are dry and well ventilated, and* 
are thoroughly heated by steam — more tha?i 60,000 
feet of steam pipe being used for this purpose ; and 
two i?idependent batteries of boilers supply the steam. 
The warehouse windows have glass in them, and 
the interiors are kept at uniform temperature the 
year round. No expense has been spared in the 
cooperage or warehouses to bring the whisky to the 
highest point of maturity possible to be obtained in 
the shortest time, consistent with the preservation of 
all the qualities and characteristics of high grade 
sour mashes, Bourbons, and Ryes. As the result of 
this care and large expense our Whiskies do actually 
mature very rapidly, and are ready for consumption 
at from two to three years of age — the great bulk 1 
being taken out of bo?id before the maturity of the 
tax. This will be clearly see?i by referring to the 
table on page 2 1 , where special atte?ition is asked to 
the withdrawals of the 1889 and 1890.

(Registered Brand.) 

The age and genuineness of this Whisky are guaranteed by the 
Excise Department of the Canadian Government, by certificate over 
the capsule of every bottle. From the moment of manufacture until 
this certificate is affixed the Whisky never leaves the custody of the 
Excise officers. 

No other Government in the world provides for consumers this 
independent and absolute guarantee of purity and ripeness. 

Our Whiskies are all matured in barrels, in warehouses warmed 
by steam during the cold seasoffs , and having a capacity of 80,000 
barrels, equal to 4,200,000 wine gallons. 

Our u Canadian Cdub" is an absolutely pure and thoroughly ma- 
tured Whisky, without any flavoring matter whatever, and therefore 
peculiarly adapted for medicinal use. 

We have never put up a bottle of Whisky other than in bond and 
under the immediate supervision of the Inland Revenue officers. Con- 
sequently no goods purporting to be ours are genuine without the 
certificate referred to above. 



IMPORTANT NOTICE AND CAUTION. 

The high reputation of our brand has brought out a number of 
more or less close imitations of our labels, etc., and the official stamp 
of the Canadian Excise has been boldly counterfeited in more than 
one instance. 

We therefore warn consumers and respectable dealers against these 
pernicious brands, and would draw attention to the following facts: 

We are the only Distillers in Canada of the name of WALKER. 

We have the exclusive right to use the word "Club" in connection 
with Whisky distilled in Canada. 

We use only the finest quality of bottles, capsules, labels, etc., 
while, so far as we have yet seen, those of our imitators are as inferior 
as is their Whisky. 

And we inform the unscrupulous parties who are engaged in 
putting up and selling counterfeits of our goods that we will prose- 
cute them to the fullest extent of the law.

Nov. i6,.iS9i. 

" We have been recently favored with the beautiful show-card 
of * RICHXAND » Whisky by Mr. George Herzog, Cincinnati, O. 
Although we have already passed the age of ecstacy when look- 
ing at the features of a lovely woman, yet there must be a sparkle 
left in us, for it became kindled when we gazed at the loveliness 
of feature which so entranced us that we involuntarily pro- 
nounced it the 'Goddess of Richland.' Her spirituelle aspect de- 
noted that in some land rich with the bouquet of spiritual pro- 
duct she had become imbued with Richland spirit. We feel con- 
fident that the beautiful and artistic creation will largely con- 
'f j tribute to the already pronounced success of the 'Richland,' and 
I hich this excellent whisky so justly deserves." 

Special Notice to the Trade: 

We have a lot of W. H. McBrayer Spring 1881 Whisky, home-stored 
and unbonded by ourselves, purity guaranteed, which we consider the finest 
lot of old Whisky in America. Prices and samples on application.

CONCERNING BARRELS. 



To the Kentucky Distillers who are not using The 
Chess & Wymond Co.'s Barrels: 

The trade demands a better barrel than the old 
hand-made one. We are maki?ig it. Some of the 
points of superiority are : 

Absolutely dry timber. We carry a stock of over 
two millio?is of staves. 

Perfect charring. Our patented charring appa- 
ratus gives fine dark color to the Whisky. 

Heavy Steel Hoops, giving 30 per ce?it. more 
binding force. They are driven home by powerful 
machinery. 

Our Jointing, Trussing, and Headrounding ma- 
chines are all of the latest and most improved 
design, and do their^work perfectly. 

We supply twelve of the fourteen Louisville dis- 
tillers, and as many more in the State. Every one 
of them will endorse our claims. 

We have been making Whisky Barrels for < 
fifteen years, and have never lost a customer. 

We ask you to give our barrel a trial. Put a 
hundred or hvo in your racks, and compare outage. 

For heated warehouses we especially prepare 
barrels that are unequaled. 

In our opinion the barrel question is important 
enough for you to investigate our methods of manu- 
facture. We will take pleasure in driving you 
out to our works at any time, arid explainirig how 
we make a barrel. We may save you some "outs" 
Sincerely yours, 

CHESS & WYMOND CO., Louisville, Ky.

DISTILLERS OF 

pine ^entucltf ^our JVEasti Whisky, 

OWENSBORO, KY. 

We think it in place for us to call the attention of the 
trade to the following concerning our brands of whisky, 
and append the certificate of the Hon. John Feland, Col- 
lector of Internal Revenue for this, the Second District of 
Kentucky. Our brands, " M. V. Monarch/' " Sovereign," 
"Jockey Club,'' " Kentucky Tip," "John Hanning," " E. 
C. Berry," "Cliff Falls," "P. E. Payne," " Maryland Rye," 
and " Kentucky Cyclone," are in the strictest sense of the 
words sour mash whiskies. They are first mashed in 
small tubs, one and one half bushels at a time, with spent 
beer (sour slop), where the mash sours for tzventy-four 
hoars, then the contents of these small tubs are broken 
up and run into the fermenters and ferment for ninety- 
six hours, a liberal proportion of small grain being used. 
Then they are singled in copper and doubled in copper by 
furnace heat. Nothing but the finest of corn and the 
choicest of malt and rye is used. We can recommend them 
to the trade as the finest of Kentucky sour mash zuhiskies. 

They are stored in the best and most improved mod- 
ern warehouses, heated by steam, and improve in quality 
rapidly. We guarantee outs and proof on each and every 
barrel. Yours very sincerely, 

The M. V. Monarch Co. 

By M. V. Monarch, Pres. 

I, Jehu Feland, Collector Second District, Ky., do hereby certify 
thai *.h^ foregoing description of making the whisky under the sev- 
eral brands of the M. V. Monarch Co., to my personal knowledge and 
observation is strictly true in every detail.

MANUFACTURERS OF 

SUGflf* COLiOWG, 

155 MAIDEN LANE, NEW YORK. 

THR value of Pure, Reliable Sugar Coloring is fully recognized as of 
the greatest importance by all users of this article. That the use 
of imperfect coloring oftentimes causes a total loss of hundreds of dol- 
lars of valuable goods (at a cost of but a few cents in the value of the 
sugar coloring itself) is an experience from which few indeed among 
the trades have escaped, and such experience with many is still fresh 
iu memory. 

The poor and unreliable qualities of sugar coloring in the market 
are generally due to same being over-burnt, which invariably causes 
such color to cloud and deposit, spoiling the goods in which used, 
affording proof that the makers of such goods are lacking in practical 
experience, or dependent on pretended knowledge of so-called " sugar 
burners" or upon ordinary labor, reliance upon which constitutes a 
principal reason for failure to turn out a proper article. 

The undersigned have made the manufacture of Sugar Coloring a 
careful study and specialty for many years. This experience, com- 
bined with scientific research in the development of new processes, 
has enabled us to make our plant the most modern and perfect, and 
probably the largest in operation, for the manufacture of this article. 
Our success is based upon the correct knowledge of How to Burn 
Sugar, attainable only through many j'ears of practical experience 
at the " Kettle," and by the use of most careful and sound judgment, 
because the operation is not merely mechanical, but intelligent, 
varying according to conditions, proper application of heat, quality 
of sugar used, etc. 

Another most important matter necessary to success, and often 
omitted where makers depend on their hired help simply, is the 
testing of coloring during its evolution and when made, neglect of 
which is a prime cause why so much unreliable coloring finds its way 
on the market. Each batch made by us is first Filtered by an im- 
proved process, whereby the coloring is absolutely freed from any sedi- 
ment; it is then carefully tested to "Standard" before leaving our 
works. Therefore we can guarantee our manufacture exceedingly 
brilliant, and warranted never to cloud or deposit, but to remain stable 
and unchangeable in the goods in which used, our quality holding the 
trade wherever introduced. 

Our Sugar Coloring may be relied upon at all times to be of an 
unvarying strength of coloring matter, the highest possible to attain 
coincident with brilliancy ; so that any one, having once obtained his 
£auge or measure, has it always. 

Gelien & Co. 's Sugar Coloring excels all others for Quality, Purity, 
Brilliancy, and Strength, and will meet every possible want where this 
rrticle is used, giving satisfaction to the most exacting. We shall be 
pleased to furnish sample and quotation on application, and trust you 
maj give us an opportunity to convince you of the superior merit 
claimed for our goods. 

Yours truly, 

GELIEN & CO.

" The Champion " is in its fourteenth yea 
and has subscribers in over 800 cities and towi 
scattered over 32 States and Territories. 

It is the best advei'tising medium for the trade. 

Distillers and jobbers should remember that th 
advertisement of their special brands in a paper 1 
such wide-spread circulation among the reta 
dealers, largely assists instead of interfering vvitl 
the trade of those wholesale dealers who hand 
their goods. It creates an increased demand, an 
the saloon keeper will not apply to the distillei 
directly, but to the wholesale firm with whom 
deals. Ultimately the distiller gets the profit.

Wanted an Inventor who can Dispel Fogs. 



The "London Times" says that if such an 
affliction as a London black fog of a week's dura- 
tion were visited upon New York, American 
genius would rise to the occasion and invent 
some method of dispelling it. More than one 
newspaper has cited the case of the rainmakers 
in the United States with a view to stimulating 
scientific research in the matter of vanquishing 
King Fog. 

© © ® © © 

To the Wholesale Wine and Spirit Trade : 

Particularly outside of London, it is not of 
so much importance to know how to vanquish King 
Fog as to be able to furnish a perfectly pure and 
mellow whisky without having to stand the ex- 
pense of carrying same for years in bonded ware- 
houses. 

It is a fact admitted by the ablest blenders in 
the " United States''' as well as several of the larg- 
est blenders in Great Britain and Ireland, that 
one gallon "Barrett's Unrivalled Prune Juice" will 
mellow and ripen 40 gallons of New Whisky as 
much as three years of storage will, and at a cost 
I of less than One Cent per gallon. 

"Barrett's Unrivalled Prune Juice" is THE ONLY 
PERFECT PRUNE JUICE EVER MANUFACTURED, and 
THE ONL Y ONE which is guaranteed not to cloud 
Whiskies. 

Write for sample, which will be sent prepaid ; 
also pamphlet, "How to Achieve Success in the 
Wine and Spirit Trade" and "How to Tell a 
Perfect Prune Ju ice. ' '

°^ TO TB^ 



TAKE two white glass bottles, each contain- 
ing one quart, and mark them Nos. i and 
2 ; then nearly fill each with spirits or new 
whisky ioo-proof; to bottle No. i add one 
ounce of the "Barrett's Unrivalled Prune Juice," 
and to No. 2 add one ounce of any other brand 
(none excepted) ; mix well and cork, and set 
aside for twenty-four or forty-eight hours, after 
which time hold each bottle up to the light 
and examine carefully, so as to ascertain if 
there is a cloud or sediment in either. You 
will find that the bottle No. 1 , which contains 
the "Barrett's Unrivalled" is bright as crystal, 
with not a particle of cloud or sediment, and 
also that the spirit is vastly improved in both 
taste and flavor. Our " Prune Juice" is the 
only one that will stand the above test, hence 
it is invaluable for bottlers and blenders of 
fine whisky, and for all high-class dealers who 
appreciate a really meritorious article. Beware 
of the poor compounds that are being offered 
as being like " Barrett's Unrivalled." Make 
the above test, and judge for yourself.

DISTILLERS OF 



"GREENBRIER" 



PylSTlLLED to meet the demand for the finest 
y/ Sour Mash Whisky, mashed by hand in small 
tubs and fermented, per instructions contained in 
the late circular of the Commissioner of Internal 
Revenue, regulating and designating the manner of 
fermenting Sour Mash from Slop Mash and Sweet 
Mash Whisky. Said circular caused much fear and 
uneasiness amongst nearly all the distillers in the 
State who seek for " big yield," rather than quality, 
and whose houses should, in justice to all concerned, 
have been surveyed, and the product branded Sweet 
Mash, instead of misleading the trade by branding 
all such stuff Hand-made Sour Mash Whisky. The 
management of the GrKEnbrier Distii,i,ERY hailed 
the circular as an act of justice to them, as they 
strictly comply with the requirements contained 
therein, as to the distillation of a Pure Hand-made 
Sour Mash Whisky.

DISTILLERS OF THE 

" BELLE OF NELSON" ' 

OFFICE, NEW HOPE, NELSON CO., KY. 
Main Office, 123 and 125 East Main St LOUISVILLE, KY. 



A WORD TO THE WISE. 

Energy and printers' ink are the greatest friends that an article 
of genuine merit has ; especially is this true in the great city of New 
York, whose people have not time to hunt up the good things of life, 
but are willing and able to pay not only for the article but for the cost 
of bringing it to their attention. An evidence of this is the wonderful 
progress The Belle of Nelson Distillery Co. have made in introducing 
their great brand the "Belle of Nelson" in our market. Eighteen 
months ago this whisky was known in our city to a very limited extent. 
The knowledge of it was brought here by those who had visited old 
Kentucky, the dark and bloody ground, and whilst there supplied them- 
selves with the" Belle of Nelson," which has great renown at home. 
From this small acquaintance coupled with extensive and shrewd ad- 
vertising this brand has become the fashion in New York. No first- 
class saloon, hotel or grocery store is considered c6mplete without 
their shelves and counters are well loaded with the now familiar Flint 
Glass bottle with blue crescent on the label, which every one knows 
at a glance contains this old and superior whisky. 




There may be many others just as good in Kentucky, but how are 
the millions of people in New York and immediate vicinity to find it out 
if the owners hide it under a bushel ? 

If you would place your whisky where the " Belle of Nelson " is, 
seek the mediums that they have sought, the leading one of which is 
this paper, and after twelve months trial, if you do not succeed as they 
have done, then it is because your whisky has not the merit. The 
" Belle of Nelson" is one of the highest priced whiskies in the land, 
and this fact instead of being a drawback is positively an assistance to 
it, as our people are not seeking a cheap article, but want the best 
that money can buy. The distillery that produces this celebrated 
brand is comparatively a small one in the hills of Nelson County, Ken- 
tucky, where sour mash whisky was first made, and if they are as 
successful with it here in the next eighteen months as they have been 
in the past eighteen, New York and immediate vicinity will come 
very near using its entire product. "A word to the wise is sufficient." 
— WINE AND SPIRIT GAZETTE, N. Y., April 21.

THE BELLE OF NEL50N. 



Editorial in Medical Progress, February, 1892. 

This name carries with it roseate thoughts of the beauty of Ken- 
tucky's fair daughters ; yet the name in this connection shall refer 
the reader to another source of inspiration which at banquets and 
other occasions is often a helpmeet of latent oratorical powers. We 
may just as well say now that we refer to the Belle of Nelson Whisky. 
It is famous not only in Louisville and throughout Kentucky as an 
article which is of the purest make that can be found. Physicians 
here, in order that their patients may get a pure quality of whisky, 
order it. When patients call for the Belle of Nelson they are sure to 
get the best whisky, and all prudent physicians should not fail to give 
them particular instructions to always ask for the Belle of Nelson. 



Editorial, Frank Leslie, April 7, 1892. 

It is not within the province of journalists to call editorial atten- 
tion to advertisements, and especially to an article, paradoxical though 
it be, that is so universally used and condemned; but, favoring the 
human side of life, in this particular instance we have accepted an ad- 
vertisement of the Belle of Nelson Distillery Co., only after an investi- 
gation of the Internal Revenue Records at Washington. This investi- 
gation shows the Belle of Nelson to be one of the very few distilleries 
that produce a strictly hand-made sour mash whisky, made upon the 
old-fashioned principles ; and such an article being required, and abso- 
lutely necessary in many instances, we commend this whisky to those 
who need a stimulant. 



Editorial, Army and Navy Register, March 26, 1892. 

Noticing advertisements in the illustrated papers and periodicals 
of the Belle of Nelson Whisky, we were tempted to examine the In- 
ternal Revenue Department, where the methods of every distiller in 
the United States are kept, and it is with pleasure that we found that 
their whisky is a pure hand-made old-time sour mash, as fully sus- 
tained by the records ; and to those requiring a stimulant it would 
seem that there is nothing better than this famous whisky, made in 
the wilds of Nelson County, Ky. We recognize the evil of liquor 
drinking as well as the beneficial effects when taken in moderation, 
consequently, we can recommend this whisky to the Army and Navy 
without having any personal acquaintance with any one interested in 
the manufacture of it.

OLD PEPPER WHISKY 



To the Public 

It having come to our notice that inferior 
Whiskies are being sold, put up in imitation of 
package we have introduced and sold for year 
past as the Distillery Bottling of our celebrat 
old Pepper Whisky, we deem it our duty to wa 
Dealers and the Public against these base imitations 

The object of the imitators is obvious: "To for 
upon the public a spurious article under the name and 
guise of a Whisky, which, having been made by three\ 
generations of the Pepper family on the same formula, I 
for more than a hundred years, and introduced to the I 
world at a great outlay of labor and expense by thef 
present firm of Jas. & Pepper & Co., has become s | 

k staple brand, and is in demand everywhere by 

^appreciative public." 

wm^ 




To guard our interests as well as those of the 
Trade and Public, we have patented our Trade Mark, 
and besides the suits already instituted against cer- 
tain imitators and infringers, we shall begin others, if 
necessary, and press them vigorously to the fullest ex- 
tent of the law. 

Dealers refilling our empty bottles, are liable for 
damages, and will be prosecuted. 

The Old Pepper Whisky bottled at our Distillery 
only, when aged under our personal supervision is put 
up in cases of 12 white flint-glass bottles with a Body- 
label, a Bach Caution-label, and a Signature-strip 
running over the cork and bottle-lip, as shown on the 
accompanying facsimile illustrations. 

Dealers and consumers should insist on getting 
this package and no other. 

Our Mr James E. Pepper is the only one bearing 
the name of Pepper who has been engaged in the 
Distillery Business in this country, for more than 
twenty years, and therefore any Whisky offered to the 
trade as genuine J^as.JELPepperWhisky is fraudulent 
unless distilled by us. 

Respectfully,

Export Storage ^ompapy, 

Bankers and Warehousemen. 



We have now storage rooms at Bremen and Ham- 
burg, and ship to either place according to the wishes 
of 07ir patrons. 

Under the present regulation it is necessary, i?i order 
to export domestic spirits, that we receive instructions 
at least two weeks before the expiration of the ware- 
house bonds, i.e., by the 15th of the same month in 
which the whisky was made. Therefore, as May, 1889, 
Whiskies have to be under export bond before fune 5, 
1892, and fune, 1889, Whiskies before fuly 5, 1892, 
the orders for the exportation of such goods must be 
in our hands on or before May 15, 1892, or fune 15, 
1892, respectively. 

We furnish all bo?ids and wtake out all papers. 

We are prepared to make liberal advances on any 
quantity of Export Whiskies that may be shipped as 
soon as the distillers' warehouse receipts are placed in 
our hands. 

Having now abundance of room, we store only on 
upper floors of first-class warehouses. 

TAX-PAID WHISKY. 



We are also prepared to tax-pay and care for whis- 
kies in this country. 

Yours respectfully, 

The Export Storage Company.

FINE WHISKY FACTS. 117 



It will be seen from the foregoing tables that of the vast quantity 
of 275,435 barrels of the crops of 1880, 1881, and 1882 whisky exported in 
the years 1881, 1885, and 1886, there now remain abroad but 6,803 barrels, 
this stock embracing not alone the product of Kentucky, but also that 
of Pennsylvania, Maryland, and West Virginia, stored abroad. 

These tables further show there is a steady large consumptive de- 
mand for these aged whiskies, as evidenced by the reduction of stocks 
from 17,282 barrels of the crops of 1880, 1881, and 1882 remaining abroad 
May 1, 1891, to 6,803 barrels on May 1, 1892. 

In the same period of time the stock of the crops of 1883, 1884, 1885, 
and 1886 remaining abroad has been reduced from —

On 1st May, 1892. 

Quite a large percentage of the stocks now remaining abroad is 
owned by parties who contemplate and require its use in their own dis- 
tributing business, so that it can not be said to be on the market. 

The ownership of the balance of the stock is concentrated in a very 
few hands, and it is noticed that every now and then some particular 
brand, the stock of w r hich is nearly exhausted, is advanced and sold 
considerably beyond the general market. 

With stocks so nearly approaching exhaustion, it must be plain to 
all that future prices do not depend on the supply, but rather on the 
views of holders. 

Prices are still much below a normal scale for whiskies of such age. 

It cannot be too strongly urged upon all consumers to anticipate 
their wants for the future by purchasing liberally now. 



I have close business relations with the owners of a very 
large percentage of these old Whiskies, and can execute 
orders on the most favorable terms.

fHE Original and Genuine Prune Juice produces in 
all Whiskies, Brandies, Wines, etc., the same fine 
mellow taste and delicate flavor precisely as age does, and 
still its presence can not possibly be detected. 

As is the case with all articles of special merit, the 
Original Prune Juice has been most extensively imitated, 
generally by persons who know nothing whatever as to 
its components, but who produce nasty sweet stuff made 
from steeped fruit and sugar, or still worse, from chemi- 
cals, which but reduce the proof, and not seldom, owing to 
the ignorance of the manufacturers as to how they should 
be fined and cleared, discolor the Whiskies in which they 
are used, thus doing more injury by one package than 
would pay for ten times the quantity of the Genuine 
Article. 

The Original Prune Juice completely covers the objec- 
tionable smell in new Whiskies, a quality possessed by 
none of its imitations.

EXPORTATION. 
LOUISVILLE PUBLIC WAREHOUSE COMPANY. 



The trade is familiar with the facts of exportation, the heavy move 
merit In this direction in 1884, 1885, and 188G, and the cause thereof, the 
great crops of 1880-81 and 1881-82. 

Experience has shown there are certain climates unlit for the proper 
storage and maturity of American whiskies, and that there are again 
certain other climates well adapted for this purpose ; and this experi- 
ence is in favor of Bremen and Hamburg, as against any other ports of 
the same advantages as to warehouses, safe custody of the goods, and 
shipping facilities. In all cases where American whiskies have been 
stored in proper modern warehouses in those cities they have returned 
to this country in good condition as to proof and improvement. 

We publish views herein of tbe Hamburg and Bremen warehouses 
controlled by the Louisville Public Warehouse Company, which, it will 
be seen, are eminently fit and equal to any thing of the same kind in 
our country ; and the trade is further assured that the many years of 
experience has taught these foreign warehousemen every requisite of 
the business, and has also developed cheaper and at the same time 
better means of carrying on all the details of the business, both in 
transportation, handling and storage. Members of the t :ade who were 
abroad during the past summer, and who had occasion to inspect these 
warehouses, unanimously award them the highest praise and recom- 
mendation. The greater part of the exports of the crop of 1885-86 are 
stored in these houses, and are now returning to this country in the 
best condition. 

The class of storage being found satisfactory and equal to the same 
storage in this country, the question of exporting naturally resolves 
itself merely into a question of economy or finances, and in this direc- 
tion the following tables may be found of interest, and are calculated 
to show the entire round-trip expense should the whisky not be sold 
abroad as expected. The tables are based on an estimate of forty gal- 
lons to the barrel and assumption of equal outage at either place of 
storage (although the foreign outage has been found to be less), one 
year storage at either place, and a calculation of loss of three gal- 
lons the first year on home store goods in transfer from distillery ware- 
house to free warehouse, handling, period of storage and in transit to 
the storeroom of the wholesale dealer.

$0.1575 $0.2600 

The above table is calculated in cents per gallon. 

It will be seen that the greatest advantage is in the California ship- 
ment and the least in those to the Central States, which latter are, of 
course, at the entire expense of the home transportation both by ocean 
and rail in exporting, against very slight transportation expense in. the 
tax-paying and home-stored goods. 

Exportation has also the further and continued advantage of a sav- 
ing of the tax and the interest on the same, on the further outage each 
year the goods remain abroad additional to the first year calculated 
above, against a corresponding disadvantage in this same regard in the 
home stored goods. Exported whiskies have the still further advantage 
of a three years bonded period in the custom warehouse on the return 
of the whisky to this country and a consequent saving of interest on the 
tax for that period. Duty is now collected on imported liquors on the 
regange made on arrival in this country, but it is hoped the further 
advantage will soon be had of a regauge and assessment of duty on with- 
drawal. This question is involved in the suit of the Louisville Public 
Warehouse Company versus the Collector of Customs at Louisville, 
which case has recently been heard and submitted in the United States 
Court, and will soon be decided. 

The McKinley Bill provides that where duty is assessed by weight 
the assessment is to be made on withdrawal, and the point to be adjud- 
icated is whether weighing is part of the process of ganging. It is the 
general opinion of the trade that our point is well taken and that we 
have a good case. The ten-per-cent penalty for the second and third 
years of the Customs Bonded Period has been removed. 

It is suggested to parties intending exporting to require through all- 
rail transportation to the seaboard, ocean transportation by regular 
steamers, and a rate quoted by the Export Companies to include every 
thing complete into the foreign warehouses. The cheaper part rail and 
water lines to the seaboard have been found unsatisfactory as involving 
much extra handling detrimental both to the cooperage and contents; 
besides other risks, "tramp" steamers are dangerous owing to their 
irregularity, uncertainty as to previous cargoes (often petroleum or 
tobacco), and higher Marine Insurance, and rates involving frequent 
surprising extras are calculated to disturb the necessary harmony be- 
tween the owner and the exporters. There is to be noted whether the 
storage rate includes fire insurance in the warehouse or whether the 
same is an extra item. Lastly, deal only with reliable parties who are 
known as such and having property within the jurisdiction of the 
United States, subject to our courts to compel fulfillments of contracts, 
and consult others in the trade as to their experience in these matters. 
See that the warehouse receipt is a plain binding negotiable instru- 
ment, and free of the extraordinary conditions and stipulations often 
imposed. 

We are prepared to make liberal advance on whisky exported through us. 

Our rates are guaranteed equal to those of other parties.

The following statement shows the quantity of spirits lost in dis-

years. As it shows also the stock of spirits in warehouse at the close of 
each of the fiscal years 1872 to 1891, both inclusive, the percentage of loss

134 FINE WHISKY FACTS. 



Treasury Department, ") 

Office of the Commissioner of Internal Revenue, y 

Washington, D. C, April 9, 1892. J 

George C. Buchanan, Esq., 122 E. Main Street, Louisville, Ky. 

Sir : Your letter of 5th instant, relative to information desired for 
publication in your statistical work entitled "Fine Whisky Facts," 
has been received. 

In reply you are informed that a table of the different rates of taxa- 
tion that have prevailed on spirits since the creation of the present 
internal revenue system, giving the date of each enactment, will be 
found on page 384 of my report for the year ended June 30, 1891, a copy 
of which will be forwarded to your address. 

I would also say that there was no limitation as to the bonded period 
under the rate of 20 cents ; under the rate of 60 cents imposed by the 
act of March 7, 1864 ; and under the rates of $1.50 and $2.00. 

The act of July 1, 1862, provided that the duty on spirits stored in a 
bonded warehouse should be paid when and as it is sold or removed 
from such warehouse for sale. 

The act of June 30, 1864, provided that the duty should be paid 
before the spirits were removed from the distiller's warehouse, unless 
removed in pursuance of law. This act also provided that the spirits 
might be removed from the distiller's warehouse to another warehouse, 
from which they might be withdrawn after payment of the duty im- 
posed by law, or to be redistilled or exported. 

The act of July 13, 1866 while providing a more elaborate system of 
warehousing, did not limit the bonded period. 

Under the provisions of the act of July 20, 1868, which fixed the tax 
on spirits thereafter produced at 50 cents per gallon, the time in which 
such spirits might remain in bonded warehouses was fixed at one year 
from the date of the bond. This act also limited the time in which 
spirits then in warehouse should be withdrawn to within nine months 
after the passage of the act, and practically fixed the rate of tax to be 
paid on such spirits at 60 cents per proof gallon ; that is to say, at 50 
cents by the 1st section, and 10 cents additional by the 59th section 
of the act. 

Under the provisions of an act approved April 10,1869, the time 
within which spirits in bonded warehouse July 20, 1868, were required 
to be withdrawn, was extended until the 30th of June, 1869, but subject 
to an additional tax on each proof gallon deposited and bonded in 
warehouse, at the rate of one cent for each month after the 20th of 
April, 1869, and until withdrawn. 

All spirits produced under the 50 cent and 70 cent rates were allowed 
to remain in warehouse one year from the date of the warehousing 
bond, and all spirits produced under the 90 cent rate were required to 
be withdrawn within one year, until by joint resolution of March 28, 
1878, the time was extended to three years, which applied to spirits 
thereafter entered for deposit in warehouse, and, under certain condi- 
tions, to spirits covered by bond taken within one year prior to the 
passage of the resolution. 

Under the act of May 28, 1880, the time limit was also fixed at three 
years from the date of the warehousing bond. 

Under the act of March 3, 1877, a provision, applicable to grape 
brandy only, was passed fixing the time at three years from the date of 
the original gauge as the time in which such spirits might remain in 
bond, and by the provision of an act approved October 18, 1888, the 
privilege was extended to brandy distilled from apples or peaches. 

Respectfully yours, John W. Mason, Commissioner.

FINE WHISKY FACTS. 14/ 

REVIEW OF THE SITUATION. 

" In the edition of ' Fine Whisky Facts,' issued under date 1st De- 
cember last, it was shown that during the twelve months ending June 
30, 1889, there were withdrawn from bond in the State of Kentucky of the 

Crop of 1885 , 2,117,461 gallons. 

1886 11,397,006 " 

Note.— Exported in 1889, 1,539,792 gallons. 13,514,467 " 

During the twelve months ending June 30, 1890, there 
were withdrawn from bond of the 

Crop of 1886 3,036,766 gal Ions. 

1887 9,396,553 " 

Note.— Exported in 1890, 340,270 gallons. 12,433,319 " 

During the twelve months ending June 30, 1891, there 

were withdrawn from bond of the 
Crop of 1887 1,997,295 gallons. 

" 1888 2,455,530 " 

4,452,825 " 

" A comparison of these figures shows the withdrawals of three- to 
four-year-old whiskies for the last fiscal year ending 30th June, 1891, 
were about 7,500,000 gallons less than the withdrawals of the same age 
whiskies for either of the two previous years, and the result of the small 
withdrawals the past season must be a vacuum of stocks in dealers' 
hands to a corresponding extent, so that the stock of 1889 whiskies rinds 
a market bare of withdrawals of previous crops, and consumption 
having no reserve stocks of 1888 and 1887 whiskies to supply it, must of 
necessity concentrate upon the supplies of 1889. 

" When the present cheapness of 1889 whiskies as compared with 
prices that have prevailed for 1888, 1887, and 1886 whiskies in the past 
two years is considered, inviting and encouraging consumption, and 
with the enormous consuming power of the country, the consequence 
of the bountiful crops of the past season, the consumption of this age 
of whisky must be beyond all precedent, and the small percentage of 
existing stocks that it may be found necessary to export, or to tax pay 
for aging purposes, can not be larger than should under any circum- 
stance be so held. The stocks of all ages prior to 1889 are so nearly ex- 
hausted a liberal supply of 1889's will be needed for aging purposes." 

The course of the market for 1889 whiskies during the past four to 
six months has more than borne out the favorable view of the situation 
expressed in the foregoing extracts. 

Consumption has been pressing, largely anticipating tax maturities, 
and is noAV not only taking stocks of 1889 whiskies at the scale of prices 
that prevailed in December last, but in nearly all instances at largely 
advanced prices, and the conclusion is irresistible, that the dearth of 
supplies of the inspections prior to 18S ( .> was much greater than was 
generally believed. 



FINE WHISKY FACTS. 



Force is added to the opinion that holders require the stocks of 1889 
for the needs of immediate consumption, by the very small volume of 
the exports of the 1889 crop. (The monthly exports are shown in state- 
ments on pages 35, 37, 39, 41, 43.) 

"In the 1st December, 1891, edition of Fine Whisky Facts it was 
estimated the withdrawals for the year ending 30th Jane, 1892, would 
be (see page 33 of that edition)— 

Crop of 1888 598,740 gallons. 

1889 10,631,792 " 

1890 7,361,708 ** 

1891 5,187,653 " 

1892 3,000,000 " 

Total 26,779,893 " 

And estimating the production of the year ending 30th June, 1892, at 
25,000,000 gallons, it was estimated we would reach 30th June, 1892, with 
stock remaining in bond as follows : 

Crop of 1889 " 3,000,000 gallons. 

1890 21,831,401 " 

1891 25,634,708 " 

1892 22,000,000 " 

Total 72,466,109 " 

The withdrawals for the current season, 1st July, 1891, to 31st 
March, 1892, have been as follows : (See table on page 49.) 

Crop of 1888..... 347,172 gallons. 

" 1889 6,112,680 " 

1890 4,968,480 " 

1891 3,537,254 " 

" 1892 2,335,435 " 

Total 17,301,021 " 

The withdrawals for the months of April, May, and June, 1892, it 
is estimated, will be as follows : 

Crop of 1889 3,600,000 gallons. 

1890 2,000,000 

1891 1,500,000 " 

1892 1,000,000 " 

Which will bring the total withdrawals of the year ending 30th June, 
1892, to— 

Crop of 1888....: 347,172 gallons. 

1889 9,712,680 " 

1890 6,968,480 " 

1891 5,037,254 " 

1892 3,335,435 " 

Total 25,401,021 " 



FINE WHISKY FACTS. 149 



The production 1st July, 1891, to 31st March, 1892 (see 

table on page 47), amounted to 18,643,798 gallons. 

Estimated production for April, 1892 0,000,000 " 

" " May, " 5,500,000 " 

June, " 2,191,037 " 

Total estimated crop of the season ending 30th 
June, 1892 32,335,135 " 

If these estimates of withdrawals and production for the months 
of April, May, and June prove correct, we will reach the 30th June, 
1892, with a stock remaining in bond — 

Crop of 1889 3,350,3G8 gallons. 

1890 22,879,932 " 

1891 25,944,920 " 

1892 29,000,000 " 

Total 81,175,220 " 

As against stock remaining ill bond 30th June, 1851— 

Crop of 1888 347,172 gallons. 

1889 13,063,048 " 

1890 t 29.848,412 " 

1891 30,982,174 " 

Total *. 74,240,800 " 

By reference to pages 112, 119, 121, 123, 125, and 127 the methods and 
facilities for exporting whisky will be found exhaustively set forth by 
the Exy>ort Storage Company, of Cincinnati, and the Public Warehouse 
Company, or Louisville. 

These two great Companies have so perfected the system that the 
exportation of a lot of whisky to Europe is now as simple and free from 
complication as an ordinary shipment from Kentucky to any domestic 
point. 

" Especial attention is called to the tables of the Louisville Public 
Warehouse Company, comparing the cost of export with the cost of 
home-storage, showing whisky can be exported and returned to this 
country after one year cheaper than it can be carried an equal period 
at home, a striking commentary on the injustice of American law, as 
applied to the article of whisky. 

" Aside from former facilities for exportation, foreign capital is now 
offering in unlimited amount to carry at cheap rates liberal advances 
on whiskies stored in Bremen and Hamburg. 

"Such is the facility for export, and such the financial facility for 
carrying exported stocks held abroad, that no holder need longer con- 
sider the maturity of the tax as a factor entering into his calculations; 
he has simply to transfer his stocks from the Kentucky warehouse to 
the Bremen or Hamburg warehouse, where they can enjoy all the advan- 
tages of an unlimited bonded period."'

FINE WHISKY FACTS. 151 



In considering the present situation, it may be concluded the trade 
have made up their minds, that through exportation they practically 
have all the advantages of an unlimited bonded period, minus the cost 
of exportation, and the buoyancy of the market may be attributed to the 
elimination from trade conditions of the enforced payment of taxes 
in advance of the needs of consumption, and whilst the stock of 1890's 
on 30th June, 1892, 22,879,932 gallons appears large, the same causes that 
have operated to absorb stocks of 1889's will continue in force to take 
off the supplies of 1890's, and even if a few million gallons are exported, 
or tax paid, and carried in dealers' stocks, they will be required for 
aging purposes at remunerative prices. 

Attention is called to the fact that whilst stocks on the 30th June, 

1891, were: 

Crop of 1890 29,848,412 gallons. 

1891 30,982,174 

Total 60,830,58G gallons. 

The stocks on 30th June, 1X92, will be: 

Crop of 1891 25,944,920 gallons. 

" 1892 29,000,000 

Total 54,944,920 gallons. 

A gain in the statistical condition of the 1891 crop as compared with 
the 1890 crop of 3,903,492 gallons, and of the 1892 crop as compared with 
the 1891 crop of 1,982,174 gallons. 

The large. estimated production of the current season to 30th June, 

1892, 32,335,435 gallons may prove a blessing in disguise, as it will tend 
to restrain the market on a normal low basis, and keep prices of Ken- 
tucky Whiskies within the reach of a large volume of legitimate con- 
sumption. 

A standard Kentucky Whisky is the best and safest alcoholic bever- 
age in the world, and especially suited to the American climate in 
which a stimulant of its specific character is a necessity. Wherever it is 
once used it never loses its foothold, and if the Kentucky distiller will 
be satisfied with a legitimate manufacturing profit, and if dealers will 
be satisfied to place stocks before the trade at a scale of prices allowing 
a reasonable profit over carrying charges, and if speculation does not 
interfere to prevent, consumption of Kentucky Whiskies, encouraged 
by their merit and the cheapness at which they can be afforded, will 
greatly increase over the present large volume.

FINE WHISKY FACTS. 153 



REVIEW OF WHAT THE WHISKY TRADE AND 
DISTILLERS WANT. 

The list of reforms printed on preceding page is published herein 
for general information. 

The tax should be reduced to 50 cents, in order to provide the con- 
sumer an older, consequently healthier beverage, at the same cost of a 
raw and inferior article now consumed. 

The bonded period should be unlimited, because it is a correct 
principle that no tax should be collected until the article taxed is 
wanted for consumption ; and a government that is collecting a tax of 
90 cents a gallon on an article that costs 25 to oO cents a gallon to produce 
certainly can afford to wait for the tax until the article is wanted for 
actual consumption. 

It is one of the curiosities of modern legislation that an article 
that has paid into the National Treasury nearly fourteen hundred million 
dollars (see statement on page 132 of this book), should be the subject of 
such inimical legislation. 

Under the Internal Revenue Laws the payment of the tax on spirits 
is now enforced at the end of three years, whilst under the laws govern- 
ing the foreign trade of the country the owner can, at the expiration of 
the three years, export his spirits to a foreign country, hold it there as 
long as he pleases, bring it back after the expiration of any length of 
time, and no matter if half the quantity may have leaked out, pay the 
tax only on what is brought back, and is given the privilege of holding 
it three years after its return to this country in customs warehouses be- 
fore paying the tax ; not alone that, but the privilege of shipping it 
in bond to and from any point in the country where there is a custom 
house. 

The wisest men in the trade have for ten years past been urging 
that the "bonded period be made indefinite," and the whisky be per- 
mitted to remain quietly in the distillery bonded warehouses until 
wanted for consumption, instead of being shipped to foreign countries 
at great expense to the American owner, and to the great profit of 
foreign Steamship Companies and warehousemen. 

The time of the average American Congressman, however, is so much 
taken up with saving the country politically, he apparently has but 
little time to study what affects the material interests of the country, 
and will not take the trouble to investigate laws governing the trade in 
distilled spirits resting on incorrect foundation of principle, which in 
the last ten years have deliberately taken millions of dollars out of the 
pockets of American laborers to put it into the pockets of foreign 
laborers. 

If any thing goes wrong in Wall Street, Washington is excited, and 
the Secretary of the Treasury rushes to New York, seeking the advice 
of the leading minds as to what help the government can render, and 
the 6offers of the treasury are emptied to arrest disaster, but the great 
distilled spirits interest of the country, which has paid into the United 
States Treasury nearly fourteen hundred millions of dollars since the im- 
position of internal revenue taxes, and is now paying in excess of eighty 



15* FINE WHISKY FACTS. 



millions dollars taxes annually, has learned, after many fruitless efforts, it 
is almost useless to appeal to Congress for reforms in legislation, and to 
patiently suffer the burden of existing unwise and improper legislation 
that at times not only threatens but has frequently produced serious 
disaster. 

It seems positively absurd, and it is a reflection on the intelligence 
of the law makers of our country that for ten years past they should 
have witnessed the movement of spirits to and from Europe, not alone 
at a great expense to the owners but at a large loss of revenue to the 
government itself, without any effort on the part of Congress to so 
amend the laws that spirits could remain iu bond in our own country 
instead of in foreign countries. 

It would be an act of long deferred justice if Congress would, be- 
fore it adjourns, pass a bill making the bonded period indefinite. It is 
an absolute necessity not only for the development of the whisky inter- 
est of the country, but the greatest drawback that exists at this date to 
the development of the wine interests of the country is the limited 
bonded period which" is obsolete in every nation in the world, governed 
by intelligent men, but the United States. 

The privilege of bottling in bond would naturally follow an unlim- 
ited extension of the bonded period, and would be a great aid to our 
distillers in introducing their whiskies into foreign countries.

The maximum allowance for loss on casks or packages of less 
capacity than forty wine-gallons, and not less than twenty wine-gallons, 
is limited to one half the amount stated in the above table. No loss 
will be allowed on casks or packages of less capacity than twenty 
wine-gallons. 

It will be seen that where the logs of spirits while in warehouse 
does not exceed the statute limit, the tax is to be collected on the proof- 
gallons contents as shown by the regauge. 

Where the loss exceeds the statute limit the tax will be collected on 
the number of proof-gallons contents, as shown hy the original gauge, 
less only the loss allowed by law.

Taylor -Meagher Proof Gup. 



( PAT. MAY 31ST, 1892.) 



\M 



AN INSTRUMENT FOR THE INSPECTION 
OF DISTILLED SPIRITS, embracing the 
pipette or thief, the hydrometer cup, 
the thermometer and the hydrometer 
[U. S. Standard hydrometer stems to be 
used]. 

The old manner of taking proof of spirits is 
CRUDE, ADMITTEDLY INACCURATE, 
DISAGREEABLE AND INCONVENIENT. 
With this Instrument ABSOLUTE ACCU- 
RACY IS ASSURED. It is quickly and 
easily handled without spilling a drop of 
liquor. 

It prevents breakage of stems and econo- 
mizes time and labor. 

For price, and circular giving full particu- 
lars, write to
